Twelve weeks ago I began the process of contacting churches and church communities along my route to ask them if they would be able to offer me overnight hospitality in their church, church hall, porch or graveyard. Although initially the response was slow, things have really picked up now, and yesterday I confirmed the 38th of 48 nights. Of the remaining 10 nights; 5 are under discussion, 1 has a camping option and just 5 remain unresolved. The generosity and warmth of the response to my request has been fantastic, and in very many of the locations I have been offered hospitality in the homes of church members.
Here is a list of the dates and locations where I have not yet secured overnight hospitality. If you think that you might be able to help please get in touch.
WEEK TWO: Thursday 27th July. Buckland in the Moor, Devon. Preferably anywhere withing a couple of miles, although I could adjust me route and stretch to 10 miles radius. (Currently I have a campsite option)
